Thanks for the very useful information. One thing that is important to point out is that there are two of the plastic pieces (as seen in the image in Step 12) joined together in tandem. Both have the same fragile slotted fitting. In my scanner both were fractured. In trying the quicker fix from the outside I managed to dislodge the inner one so I had to dismantle the scanner to retrieve the dislodged piece. The two pieces are very similar to each other except that the one that is on the inside lacks the wider-diameter collar. As in the image under Step 13, both of the fragile joints should be secured. I managed to use the paperclip solution on both pieces. If only the outer joint is secured the inner one will probably fail eventually.
As an aside, I would bet that it would be possible to model and 3D-print both of the pieces.
